  • About

    After a successful technology sales career in San Francisco with ROLM, IBM and
    Siemens ICN, Valerie decided to move to the beautiful Lake Tahoe Area. After 2 years
    as VP of sales for a startup technology company, she decided to spend less time
    traveling and pursued a real estate career. Some friends thought there may not be
    enough to do for a person who seems to be busy all the time. In fact, there’s so much
    to choose from, slowing down is not an option, quality of life is. Our mountain air is
    clean and aromatic, Lake Tahoe and the Sierras are magnificent and the activities are
    plentiful, all with a back drop of mountains, water and trees. The Lake Tahoe life style
    is one to live and love and includes friendly people, 2 lane roads, community
    involvement, music, health and wellbeing.

    As a Sales Professional, Valerie knows that success lies in the joy and level of
    satisfaction experienced by her clients. Such achievement can only be attained by
    listening to, and understanding, her client’s vision and blending that understanding with
    her knowledge of Tahoe as well as utilizing her expertise in negotiations to create a
    desirable outcome. A long time real estate investor herself, from Tahoe to the Bay Area
    to Hawaii, she knows the crucial goal is to provide her clients the information they need
    to make their own intelligent decisions. She believes presenting properties with the best
    photography and marketing is key, and most important, is telling the ‘story’ of the home.
